Saturday Family FREE Workshops
Make a Family Map
Work together to build an imaginative map representing your own family’s past and present. Using symbols and narrative images we use will painting, drawing, and collage to explore how memory and story create the world around us.
CIVICKIDS connection: Reflection
Bring a lunch to enjoy in the Art Park! After a short break our new family-friendly series, Indian Country Conversations, will begin with more reflections on ancestors, personal and tribal histories, and how memory impacts our world.
The whole family is invited to make art together in these artist-led, free workshops. Please arrive a few minutes early to ensure a spot. Children under seven should be accompanied by an adult. All materials provided—just bring an open and creative mind. Throughout the summer, MAM’s Saturday Family Workshops will collaborate with the CIVICKIDS initiative.
CIVICKIDS: Make Art. Make A Difference.
This is a year-long series of exhibitions, community events, and digital art calls hosted by Children's Museum of the Arts in New York City. Rooted in the belief that art builds empathy, understanding, and respect for others, CIVICKIDS aims to foster civic engagement and shared community pride through art making. Each month, CMA will issue a digital art-making challenge based on themes of civic engagement including environmentalism, identity, equity, leadership, sustainability, kindness, and freedom. Partnering institutions are invited to share photos of their audiences completing the digital challenge with #CMACIVICKIDS. The photos will be added to our online exhibition at cmany.org/civickids.
